ANDOVER (AP) – Anoka County sheriff’s officials say a man set on fire at his home in Andover has died.

His landlord is accused of dosing the man with an accelerant and lighting him on fire Tuesday night at the house they shared.

The 55-year-old man suffered burns to 80 percent of his body and was in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center. Sheriff’s Cmdr. Paul Sommer says the man has since died.

Authorities say the two men had some sort of dispute. The 29-year-old landlord fled the scene and was later arrested in St. Louis County.
